CulturePuffPuff: Keep it rosy for V-Day

Puff: Keep it rosy for V-Day

Chasing a love high? Hemper Flower Vase Bongs, Space Gems Spacedrops, and Kingpen Kingrolls will do the trick

As we wade through one atmospheric storm to another, it is easy to lose sight that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you have a special stoner in your life, then maybe you are looking for something really cool to show them you hold them in high regards.

Many people give roses or bouquets of flowers. Though beautiful and well intended, they’ll wilt, die, and hit the trash in a few weeks. And those flowers can be pricey. Instead, why not invest in something that will last a lot longer, like your affection for them? 

Hemper has been producing some really cute glassware. I even featured their holiday wreath bong recently. For Valentine’s Day, they have two flower vase bongs with a green thorny stem and a rosette bowl. They come in white, pink or smoke colors. The 7” bong runs $50, and the XL 10” flower vase is $200.

Temper Flower Vase Bongs

This is something you and your special person can enjoy long after the silly holiday is over. They are high quality and hit really well. I really like the shape of the bowl. It easily holds enough for two people to share or more if that is your kind of valentine’s day.

They remind me of my first bong, a squatty, purple, ceramic thing that I would always hide when my family came for a visit. One time, my parents arrived, and I went outside to help them bring some stuff into my place. I was not gone for three minutes, and when I returned I could smell…bongwater?! My mother was in my kitchen washing her hands, and she said, “I’m sorry, but I knocked over your purple vase, and it had all this smelly water in it.” I’m thinking, how the hell did you find that so quickly in the top cabinet above the stove behind the spice rack!! Ah! Mothers and their psychic abilities, and obviously, my mother was very nosey and in stealth mode as well!

My parents were never anti-pot. They were just more pro-booze. They were more interested than concerned when I fessed up to smoking weed. Different generations!

After flowers, we think of candy for Valentine’s. When I asked my budtender friend for a recommendation he immediately grabbed Plus Gummies’ new Tropical Twist Flow + THCV tin featuring Caffeine, Alpha GPC and Natural Nootropoics. He was adamant. “These are good for sexy-time,” he said with a naughty glint in his eye. Who was I to say no! I immediately purchased them.

The next day, I had a brunch date with friends, and as I walked out the door to meet them, I popped one of those gummies in my mouth. We met, dined, and had a fun time. I was feeling great. Everything was funny. I had energy and had just an overall rosy glow. 

I told my bestie, “I don’t know what it is, but I’m feeling great!” Then I realized it was the gummy!

I went home to do a bit more research on this miracle gummy.

PLUS+ ‘Flow’ Tropical Twist gummies

According to the website, “PLUS+ ‘Flow’ Tropical Twist gummies are designed for active users who want to stay in the zone all day long. A first of its kind gummy, crafted with a thoughtful blend of Solventless Rosin THC, THCv, CBC, caffeine, Alpha GPC, and natural nootropics. Flow combines a powerful blend of mood boosting and cognitive-enhancement ingredients working in harmony to help you stay focused, alert, and energized. Each vegan gummy contains 5mg THC, 2.5mg THCv, 2.5mg CBC, 2mg of Caffeine + a Nootropic stack that includes Alpha GPC, L-theanine, Glycine, Ashwagandha, Lions Mane, Cordyceps, & Ginkgo Biloba.”

Ok. There is a lot going on in this little gummy square. Let me try and break some of that down.

I think we all know what solventless hash is. THCv is the cannabinoid that curbs your appetite. CBC deals with managing pain. Alpha GPC helps with memory function. Nootropics also improve memory function. L-theanine is an amino acid that helps with anxiety, stress and insomnia. Glycine is another helpful amino acid. Ashwagandha is an evergreen plant that grows in Africa and Asia that helps with stress. Lion’s Mane is a fungi that is supposed to help with cognitive health among many things. Cordyceps give you a boost of energy. Ginkgo Biloba helps with body functions by helping blood flow and is one of the oldest tree species known. 

What a combo! That really worked on me. I can totally see why these would be good for sexy time or anything else you want to get done. You will be more of a chilled, attentive and energetic paramour.

Highly recommended!

Another great gift idea is Space Gems Infused Spacedrops. I like the Sweet Assorted Flavors tin with 10 yummy, sugar-coated, sweet-tart gummies containing 10mg THC each. They are made with ice water hash which means that frozen cannabis is agitated in a water and ice bath to shake off the yummy THC crystals which fall to the bottom where they are gathered and filtered and used to make the hash. You have to love stoner science!

Spacedrops are very tasty, wonderfully effective and come in a really cute tin that will make a fantastic Valentine gift.

Kingrolls by Kingpen

Sometimes weed is the only thing that will fit the bill. I think Kingrolls by Kingpen make a perfect gift for the Day of Hearts. They come in a very well made red box made to look like a deck of cards with kings on the cover giving it a regal Valentine’s Day vibe.

Each box contains four cannabis oil and kief infused pre-rolls coming in at 3 grams total. These babies are always strong and they always have very interesting combinations of flower strain and concentrate. I’m currently smoking the Sour Diesel Flower and Lemoncello Cannabis Oil pre-rolls, and they are dank and strong. 

Kingpen also has a new Dealer’s Choice Mix Variety Pack. Mine has Haze flower x Strawberry Fields oil (Hybrid), Cannalope AK flower x Cannalope Kush oil (Indica), Jack Herer flower x Durban Poison oil (Sativa) and Blueberry Pancakes flower x Blueberry Z oil. What a yummy assortment. I can’t wait to try them all! 

Remember caution when approaching an unknown joint, especially if it is infused. Just take a few puffs and wait about five minutes to see what it is going to do to you. Sometimes that is all it takes. Otherwise, you may end up staring into space all evening and totally miss your Valentine’s date.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day no matter how you choose to experience it. There is always a strong argument for a self-love Valentine moment where you buy all of the above items for yourself and hole up for the day watching your favorite romantic movies. Maybe watch Two For the Road starring Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn from 1967. It’s super groovy, very romantic and drips with star charisma. That’s one of my favorites.

Your choice! Just have fun.
